How long does a divorce take?

I just read on the BBC that a non contested divorce requires that you be seperated for two years:

Is that right?

Because here it says something differnt:

It is only sooner if there is blame for adultery, unreasonable behaviour or desertion. A non-blame divorce is two years separation uncontested, five years if contested.

Luckily it looks like government is serious about changing law now, so law might change before waiting time of two years.

She wants to cite unreasonable behaviour on my part, working too much etc etc. 

Im inclined to just accept this to let this proceed as quick as possible (however watching the law change with great interest), but is there any long term disadvantage to being the one at fault?

i dont blame you for rushing a divorce though. unless u got a mortgage and got to split assets i would just agree to it to get rid of your ex haha. i guess if u own a house then it would cause complications
